THE PERFECT CANDIDATE
Single mom and aspiring perfectionist Becca Johnston is determined to be the next mayor of Cupid's Bow, Texas. She can't afford distractions like her new tenant, rugged rodeo champ Sawyer McCall. Having a good man around the house means so much to her young son, and Becca is definitely enjoying the handsome cowboy's attention. But the election is too important to risk scandalous town gossip.
Sawyer only planned on staying in Cupid's Bow long enough to help with the upcoming centennial celebration, but with Becca and her son, he's finally found home. When she treats him like he's a dirty little secret, hiding him from her voters and her son, Sawyer is crushed. How can he convince her that love is the one thing she can't control?
Oh, what a fun and sweet story, that had me smiling like a loon. A true feel-good tale from a small town including a hot cowboy, family drama, political aspirations, and romance that will knock your socks off!
Becca Johnston, the town's favorite OCD control-freak has a lot on her plate. A single mom with no help from her disappeared ex, she is trying to juggle all the 'normal stress', added a few extra things, like running for the small town mayor and organizing town events. She is an alpha female who loves, or needs, to be in charge. And I admired her spunk, her energy, her drive, and laughed about the OCD, because, hey, that's adorable! She learns to laugh at her own quirks as well, she doesn't take herself too seriously and can be flexible when needed.
And Sawyer McCall surely had her number. They got each other, Sawyer and Becca. From the first moment, their eyes met, the connection and attraction were there. But there was more than that to it. They sincerely liked each other, had each other's backs, and most importantly, they understood the other. Sawyer and Becca's son bonded as well, and the little yet dynamic unit was born. The friendship and trust came solid and fast, while the passion and attraction were burning hot.
A charmingly cute and delightfully sexy story where two alphas meet and mate. It is fun and entertaining, the feelings are running deep, the conflict between them is not earth shattering or something that can't be fixed, I laughed, and smiled and hooted out loud at the end because of the cute twist. A perfect summer read for all cowboy loving readers!
